e-tract cable retraction system

E-mobility made easy. For a tidy charging station.

e-tract is a solution for automatically rewinding a cable. This prevents hazards and cable damage due to improper winding or obstructing cables. The e-tract is used in applications where a mobile terminal device is connected to a cable that was previously rolled up by hand. Multiple deflection means that long extension lengths can be achieved in limited installation space. The slip ring is eliminated completely.

Typical application areas: 
Control panels, tools on assembly lines and work tables, and charging stations
